More food options will be available at ION Orchard soon.

Hawker concept in town

A hawker concept called Hawkers' Street by food service provider Select Group is opening at ION Orchard very soon, according to 8 Days.

Hawkers' Street offers a collection of famous hawkers under one roof, Select Group's website indicated.

While it seems to be still under renovation, the concept is expected to look like a "1960s street dining scene in Singapore".

For now, Hawkers Street will be home to six popular eateries.

Ann Chin Handmade Popiah

As its name suggests, Ann Chin Handmade Popiah is known for its hand-rolled popiah chockful with fresh ingredients including eggs and shrimp.
